Anathema, and this album in particular, were recommended to me in a random conversation in a chatroom about a month ago. I was told, based on my muscial tastes, that this was an album I simply had to own and that it "even brings metalheads to tears." This I had to see. I ordered the CD that night and got it in the mail a few days later. I have to confess that my resistance to the idea of an album that could make metalheads weep like sissies probably contributed to my relative indifference to this CD at first. While I thought the melodies and overall musicianship were good for a nice mellow drive in the mountains, I have to say that there was nothing on this album that would make me sob like a girl.

I own over 800 CD's from all different genres. I've come to a point where I rarely pay attention to the lyrics in a song unless it's really catchy. Such was the case with Judgement. Nothing had really caught my ear. About a week after buying "Judgement," I was driving home from work when "One Last Goodbye" played. I felt a little spark. By the end of "Parisienne Moonlight," I had to pull over. For one reason or another, I'd actually listened to the lyrics, and it brought back a flood of memories. Every girl I'd ever loved and lost, every girl I'd loved and never told. All the things I should have said or done came flooding back like a maelstrom of pain and sorrow. No song or album has ever done that.

Since then, I've paid more attention to the album in its entirety. While I still think the aforementioned tracks are still my favorites, the emotional depth and impact of this album is undeniable. This is music with which everyone on earth can identify. The mood each song sets, the feelings described in the lyrics, and the emotions ellicited by the album overall are universal and undeniable; we've all felt them. I don't think it matters what genre of music you like. It would be a mistake not to check out this album.

There is so much sadness that resonates from this album, from the melancholy lyrics to the piercing and emotive guitars, that it echoes in my mind for days afterward. I keep returning for more with the knowledge that something special is about to unfold. While there is an obvious Pink Floyd influence here, it only adds to sustain the mood, to lift the songs high into the cold sky. "Emotional Winter" is both beautiful and saddening, while "Judgement" builds to a grand crescendo and ends abruptly, magnificently. While there are no songs here to invoke happiness, the bliss one feels from merely encountering such emotional music is fulfilling. I highly recommend this album for those who enjoy melancholy mixed with fluid songcraft.

¿Como un disco puede llegar a ser tan, pero tan triste?. Es increible pero esta misma tristeza es la que te llama a escucharlo una y otra vez sin cansarte. Para la gente que escucha musica melancolica onda Coldplay, Radiohead del o.k. computer o the gathering hay que decirle que esto es lo extremo de la melancolia, osea es increible.
Anathema no deja sus raices metal en este disco, no mucho en cuanto a la musica sino mas bien en el sonido, experimentan mas con guitarras acusticas, es una mezcla entre pink floyd, black sabbath y radiohead. Son 13 canciones, todas buenas por su eclectisismo y composicion, lo cual deja a Judgement a mi parecer como la obra maestra de Anathema.

Anathema has shown a remarkable progression from a rather ordinary death metal band to their current incarnation, a spacey, Pink Floyd influenced machine. Their newest album Anathema is a masterpiece, full of acoustic guitars, piano, bleak emotions and first and foremost incredible songwriting and melodies. If only they weren't known as an "underground" band, songs like "Deep" and "Pitiless" could easily be played on modern rock radio. However, don't take this as a sell-out...the material Anathema deals with (alcoholism, death, drugs, etc.) is far too bleak for most mainstream tastes. Some of the songs on this CD are so beautiful they actually brought tears to my eyes, songs like "Parisienne Moonlight" and "One Last Goodbye" are some of the purest expressions of lost love I've ever heard. This album is incredible, and deserves to be considered a classic. GET THIS ALBUM!!!!!!!!!

This is the album that got me into melodic doom metal - but this is NOT a metal album. This is 60 minutes of the most emotionally powerful music ever made - is there any band that can claim to ooze so much beauty or sadness in every note? Vincent Cavanagh possesses arguably the best voice in rock/metal. Songwriting duties are shared by the whole band making for a diverse album yet each track contains a similar distinctive sense of melody.

There's dark, haunting tracks like 'Deep' and 'Forgotten Hopes', gentle piano ballads 'Parissienne Moonlight' and '2000 and Gone' and the awesome cathartic epics 'One Last Goodbye' and 'Emotional Winter'. The female vocals on several tracks are a great complement to Vincent's voice. The lyrics are, as noted by several other reviewers, woeful but they sound a lot more respectable coming from Vincent.

It still amazes me how underrated Anathema are - whilst retaining the musical complexity and emotion to appeal to metal fans, I've gotten many friends into this album who don't listen to anything but chart music. It's very accessible to listen to, provided you're not expecting simple, happy songs.
